Hi, I'm David

a designer in Brisbane, Australia.

My design history

Every job I’ve had and every project I’ve worked on has taught me something about design, people and business. I love diving into what drives people and business and how to get the two to come together.

I started off loving animation and flash then working for a print magazine doing layouts, advertising and album covers. Then I moved more towards the web, designing websites and creating full branding and marketing strategies as well as User Interfaces for web-based applications and delving into User Experience models.

The advent and the subsequent all-encompassing rise of mobile and tablet pushed me into responsive design and collaboration with front-end web development for frameworks and agile development.

This is what I do

Now I am diving into the psychology of the digital ecosphere, working with data, research (both quantitative and qualitative), user testing, human-centred design practices, ideation cycles, design sprints, customer journey mapping, personas and the list goes on.

I thoroughly enjoy unpacking a business to understand how it ticks, and whom it will appeal to, and working with a great team to get those 2 to meet and make magic happen.

I am also working on my skills as a writer and have been slowly publishing articles on Medium. You can see more of my work history over on LinkedIn.
